About

Luciano Pavarotti - truly the greatest tenor of all time, and the best known classical musician ever. In celebration of 50 years’ association with his one and only label, Decca [UK: 50th anniversary of British debut on August 25, 1963], we are proud to present Pavarotti 'The 50 Greatest Tracks'.   

All his opera hits are here, including, Nessun Dorma - used as the 1990 World Cup theme tune that made him a household name - as well as all his famous popular songs: O sole mio, CarusoSanta Lucia, Volare and many more.

Also included is the first official release of the first known recording of his voice - the aria ‘Che gelida manina’, recorded on his Italian professional debut in 1961.

And there are great duet collaborations with superstar friends Frank Sinatra, Bono, Eric Clapton and Sting, plus fellow tenors Placido Domingo and Jose Carreras in the live Three Tenors version of Nessun Dorma that became the biggest selling classical recording of all time.

For the first time, all material is fully remastered at 24bit for the best sound ever. The 2 CDs are each 85 minutes long, making nearly 3 hours of music in all.

Pavarotti: The 50 Greatest Tracks - truly the definitive collection of the music of a great man and true legend.
